What our colleagues say "Christmas working in The Entertainer is so fast paced - I think I did more than 10,000 steps in my first day! If I wasn’t serving customers at the till, I was putting away stock in the warehouse, dealing with customer orders or talking to the excited children on the shop floor, helping them make their Christmas lists - with help from their family! I was always on the go, it wouldn't feel like I was there long, before it was time to go home again! If you love talking to people and are a team player, then this is the job for you."
